Brother 1512 440c Lock back ..

Hardness test HRC Files .. I started with the 55HRC and it skated . And then I tried 60HRC and it just bit the steel . So the hardness looks to be ok .

No metal liners .. This makes the knife light weight , but some sort of plastic / fibre liner ? The more I used the knife , the more side to side blade play there was . This was starting with a no play fit .

Edge retention .. Factory edge / 250 , 10 micron Diamond Strop on Cardboard / 250 , WetStone Grinder ( Knife Sharpener ) / 300 .

Haaaa ! This knife is a bit of a let down . The performance is very average , the more I use the knife = The more blade play there is ( watch the video )

Yes the knife is a little bushcrafty , but I have gotten better deals for less money . I own it , I paid for it & I wish I had not ! ( Buyers remorse )
